When a form indicates --do_not_change-- as, for example, QA contact, the wildcard feature complains that the string did not match anything. This is true even in wildcard mode where there shoudl be no reason for wildcard to look anything up unless there is a "*" in it.
The right thing to do for this is probably for the patch not to judge if a string matches nothing. If a string cannot find a record, it can be left untouched just as if the wildcard patch had not existed.

Created attachment 104798 [details] [diff] [review] allows --do_not_change-- to pass through without scrutiny This patch compares the value of the 'dontchange' field passed by the form to the field in question to determine whether it should be skipped over. Same way process_bug.cgi does it.
